If the "client" is the taxpaying community, I submit that clever maneuvers are being employed to circumvent the general consensus of this community by imposing a formulaic over-the-top facility at Holbook-Palmer Park, the "preferred" site (stated in print).
Concurrently, the national, state and local economies are severely stressed, the public school in our town, Selby Lane, has a library desperate for books, reference materials and a librarian, the high-speed railroad is lurking, and information technology is changing with lightening speed. If we pause, truly listen and reflect, we have an opportunity as well as an obligation to build a facility which will serve our community well while preserving Holbrook Palmer Park for recreation as stipulated in Olive Holbrook Palmer's will.
